Action-packed races highlight Round No. 6 of the LoanMart Open
Series at the Madera Speedway By Ronald Montez
If fans couldn't attend the latest August show at the LoanMart Madera Speedway, then they missed a lot of
suspenseful, competitive, and electrifying racing at the "Fastest 1/3 Mile of the West".
Each division brought a little intrigue to its respective race on Saturday night (August 30, 2014) in Round
No. 6 of the LoanMart Open Series featuring the Open Late Model Series and the Open Hobby Stock Series
along with the MST's, Toyota Sedans, 4-Bangers, and WSRA Mini Cups.
In the Open Late Model Series, the biggest question of the night was could anyone catch the speedy Matt
Erickson in his signature No. 42 Late Model car.
Two laps into the main, fans got their answer as he stormed past the rest of the 11-car competition.
Erickson, who entered the event with four Open Late Model Series victories this season, picked up his fifth
win out of six 100-lap races at the Speedway.
The official results of the Open Late Model race are pending for inspection to the cars.
While Erickson's first place finish is unofficial, his physical presence and dominance on the track couldn't
be ignored by the Speedway spectators, who witnessed him finish 9.721 seconds ahead of runner-up
Tyler, who was the top qualifier (15.756), was in a steady second place for a majority of the race after he
passed Madera's Emma Tucker on Lap 20.
Erickson was sitting comfortable before a spinout by Rick Thompson on Lap 29 brought the pack closer to
him on the caution.
Erickson didn't hesitate to regain his enormous lead with blazing restarts on Lap 29 and again on Lap 44
after contact between Aaron Mullins and Tucker occurred.
With Erickson out in front, Tyler pulled away from Mike David to sit in second.
Heading into the break, Ryan Hart was riding in a consistent fourth place followed by Tony Schmitz, Rick
Thompson, Mullins, Tucker, Del McIntosh, and Ronnie Roberts.
After returning from the pits, Erickson picked up right where he left off and began widening his lead again
by lapping most of the field on the way to another sure victory.
He was followed by Tyler in second place.
When David went out of the main on Lap 85, Hart claimed the third position and finished out the final 15
laps in that spot to reach the top-three winner's circle.
A $10,000.00 will be on the line for these drivers in the October 18 Open Late Model Championship race.
Erickson wasn't the only driver on the evening who displayed his effective racing abilities.
